The Balloon Federation of America's annual Online Seminar will be held on
Saturday, April 28, 2018
In order to provide a better viewing experience, we are changing the format this year. Instead of a live broadcast, we will be hosting a 'shared video experience'. Viewers will simultaneously watch pre-recorded video segments, and will have the chance to interact with the speakers via a chatroom-like messaging system during that speaker's presentation. For those of you who shared the live feed chaos with us last year, this should be a lot better experience.
Of course, the BFA highly recommends that balloonists attend their local face-to-face seminar if possible. We try to schedule the online seminar later in the Spring to allow those who missed a local seminar to be able to complete a course.
We also recommend watching the seminar in groups if possible. The interaction with others often enhances the experience. We know of several balloon clubs and groups that meet somewhere with a big screen and share the experience together.
